UPDATE (7/4): Listen to Lil Wayne's "Glory" via The Freezy Album here.

Original Story (6/3): Lil Wayne is dead set on leaving longtime label Cash Money Records and it appears his new music may have a home on Jay Z's new Tidal streaming service; at least one song does.

Listen above to the new Wayne cut "Glory," that premiered exclusively on Tidal. Produced by Avenue Beatz, Infamous, and Onhel, the cut incorporates a "Jesus Walks"-esque beat with its stomping, gospel choir-inspired production.

Weezy drops a few memorable bars including the pretty hilarious/clever line: "Holy shit, I'm the holy shit / I'm God's manure / I know how to hack a jeweler more than a computer / I meditate like a Buddhist / Holy Ramen noodles."

Following the exclusive premieres of Nicki Minaj's "The Night Is Still Young" video along with the MC's Beyonce-featuring "Feeling Myself" video, "Glory" is the latest cut to make its premiere on the service. But Wayne is notable for not being one of the original 16 artists to back the service when it re-launched in March alongside the likes of MadonnaDaft Punk and Jack White. Is Weezy hinting at a larger partnership with Jay (who owns management company Roc Nation) or is this a throwaway cut from The Free Weezy Album? According to the song's label data on Tidal, "Glory" was released under Cash Money Records so Wayne hasn't left his longtime home just yet.
